Goodbye 2012…

December 31, 2012

Bon voyage, so long, goodbye 2012…

You’ve taught me:

  • To follow my heart – writing is something I’ve always loved to do, and this year has taught me that I need to do what I love!
  • Persistence is key – this can be applied to a few situations this year, from arguments with awful companies, to persisting with fitness goals, such as keeping up with my 5 day-a-week training plan for the Great North Run.

You’ve taken me to:

You’ve made me faster:

I did a LOT of running in 2012, here’s a few photos of my running year…

And for 2013:

I’ve yet to think of any New Year’s resolutions, but I did stumble across this quote from the Dalai Lama which I think is quite a nice quote to try to live life by:

Avoid negative sources, people, places and habits
Believe in yourself
Consider things from every angle
Don’t give up and don’t give in
Everything you’re looking for lies behind the mask you wear
Family and friends are hidden treasures, seek them and enjoy their riches
Give more than you planned to
Hang onto your dreams
If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door
Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it
Keep trying no matter how hard it seems
Love yourself
Make it happen
Never lie, steal or cheat
Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values
Practice makes perfect
Quality not quantity in anything you do
Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer
Stop procrastinating
Take control of your own destiny
Understand yourself in order to better understand others
Visualise it
When you lose, don’t lose the lesson
Xcellence in all your efforts
You are unique, nothing can replace you
Zero in on your target and go for it
